Join CCSSO’s Webisode on Mitigating Learning Loss: Leveraging Teacher Candidates as Assets During COVID-19
As students and teachers continue to navigate remote and hybrid learning environments, many are feeling overwhelmed. Parents and teachers are worried about the learning loss that has already and continues to occur during the pandemic. District staff are trying to address budget and service delivery uncertainty posed by the COVID-19 crisis. All of these factors may minimize important opportunities for collaboration between educator preparation programs and school districts. However, the repeated pandemic theme of getting through this together may be the key to addressing some of these challenges. Through collaboration with P-12 teachers, teacher candidates can assist in remote and hybrid learning in several ways to include co-teaching and one-on-one student support.
To discuss these opportunities for collaboration and to share examples of how teacher candidates are supporting teachers during this crisis, CCSSO is hosting a webisode on Mitigating Learning Loss: Leveraging Teacher Candidates as Assets During COVID-19. This webisode will feature key recommendations and discussion around the joint issue brief from CEEDAR, the Center for Great Teachers and Leaders at AIR, and AACTE released this summer: Addressing Shortages of Educators in an Uncertain COVID-19 Landscape: Viewing Teacher Candidates as Assets.
Loretta Mason-Williams of Bingham University, Chris Rodgers from AASA, and Jacqueline Rodriguez from AACTE will present. Additional panelists will include Lindsey Decker, teacher candidate, Boston Public Schools and Boston University; Min Jen Taylor, principal, Boston Public Schools; Ellie Friedland, Program Supervisor, Boston Public Schools and Clinical Associate Professor, Boston University; and Davena Jackson, assistant professor, Boston University. Discussion will focus on addressing the questions of how to leverage teacher candidates to support P-12 teachers in addressing student learning loss,and how existing partnerships between state, district, and educator preparation programs can play a role in solving current challenges.
Register for the webisode webisode and join the discussion on Wednesday, October 28 at 1:00 p.m. ET for an engaging conversation.
